About Us

The Fish & Wildlife Foundation of Florida, Inc. was formed on September 29, 1994, as a nonprofit organization to provide assistance, funding and promotional support to contribute to the health and well-being of Florida’s fish and wildlife resources and their habitats. We are the citizen-support organization of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

Our mission is to partner with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to ensure the conservation and enhancement of Florida’s fish and wildlife resources so they survive and thrive for current and future generations of Florida residents and visitors.

Celebrating our 20th year of service, the Foundation raises funds and builds support for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and other organizations engaged in science-based nature conservation, management, education, and research activities. For example, the Foundation:

  • Builds effective partnerships with communities, businesses, organizations, and people throughout the State.
  • Finances programs to preserve and restore the unique, diverse plants, animals, and natural communities of Florida.
  • Creates opportunities for residents and visitors to use, enjoy, and learn about the State’s fish and wildlife resources

We appreciate your support

Every Florida resident or visitor can provide critically needed funds to aid in the creation and management of healthy, sustainable plant and animal communities for future generations. And that’s good for all of us.
